The Climate is A-Changin'
Most of us realize that global warming is no joke, and it seems that even President Bush is coming around: he recently released a report on how the United States is affecting global warming. The report also makes predictions about how it will hit the poor and elderly the hardest, in terms of more serious health problems.
Even if you are young and in relatively good health, however, these issues are still relevant. Some food- and water-borne diseases will become more prevalent, and geographic areas that lie close to or at sea level are at risk of being eroded and engulfed.
Unfortunately, this climate change report was put off for years by the Bush administration; only when environmental groups decided to sue did the research get done. As with so many changes, large or small, admitting that something needs to change or be changed is the first step. How confident are you that we can make up for lost time? Is going green in your own life enough to make a dent in the problem? [The New York Times]
